CCleaner Browser – a web browser based on Chromium, which features improved the performance and speed to MS Windows users.

– Supercharged the browser to give you an even faster browsing experience. Tabs that you’re not using will be automatically suspended in the background depending on your computer’s available memory.
– Your browser can often be a drain on your laptop battery by adding some clever tweaks under the hood to make sure our browser uses less CPU and RAM when you’re running low on battery.
– Mask your browser fingerprint to disguise your online trail. Websites and ad networks are getting smarter. Instead of relying exclusively on cookies and your IP address to identify you, they’re also using your unique browser configuration to keep tabs on you. Anti-Fingerprinting hides your browser information from sites to help protect your privacy and limit online tracking.

OnionShare – an open source tool that lets you securely and anonymously share files, host websites, and chat with friends using the Tor network.

Third parties don’t have access to anything that happens in OnionShare. Using OnionShare means hosting services directly on your computer. When sharing files with OnionShare, they are not uploaded to any server. If you make an OnionShare chat room, your computer acts as a server for that too. This avoids the traditional model of having to trust the computers of others.

Network eavesdroppers can’t spy on anything that happens in OnionShare in transit. The connection between the Tor onion service and Tor Browser is end-to-end encrypted. This means network attackers can’t eavesdrop on anything except encrypted Tor traffic. Even if an eavesdropper is a malicious rendezvous node used to connect the Tor Browser with OnionShare’s onion service, the traffic is encrypted using the onion service’s private key.

Anonymity of OnionShare users are protected by Tor. OnionShare and Tor Browser protect the anonymity of the users. As long as the OnionShare user anonymously communicates the OnionShare address with the Tor Browser users, the Tor Browser users and eavesdroppers can’t learn the identity of the OnionShare user.

If an attacker learns about the onion service, it still can’t access anything. Prior attacks against the Tor network to enumerate onion services allowed the attacker to discover private .onion addresses. If an attack discovers a private OnionShare address, a password will be prevent them from accessing it (unless the OnionShare user chooses to turn it off and make it public). The password is generated by choosing two random words from a list of 6800 words, making 6800², or about 46 million possible passwords. Only 20 wrong guesses can be made before OnionShare stops the server, preventing brute force attacks against the password.

Communicating the OnionShare address might not be secure. Communicating the OnionShare address to people is the responsibility of the OnionShare user. If sent insecurely (such as through an email message monitored by an attacker), an eavesdropper can tell that OnionShare is being used. If the eavesdropper loads the address in Tor Browser while the service is still up, they can access it. To avoid this, the address must be communicated securely, via encrypted text message (probably with disappearing messages enabled), encrypted email, or in person. This isn’t necessary when using OnionShare for something that isn’t secret.

Communicating the OnionShare address might not be anonymous. Extra precautions must be taken to ensure the OnionShare address is communicated anonymously. A new email or chat account, only accessed over Tor, can be used to share the address. This isn’t necessary unless anonymity is a goal.

Tribler – a research project of Delft University of Technology. Tribler was created over nine years ago as a new open source Peer-to-Peer file sharing program.

Tribler is the first client which continuously improves upon the aging BitTorrent protocol from 2001 and addresses its flaws. It was expanded with, amongst others, streaming from magnet links, keyword search for content, channels and reputation-management. All these features are implemented in a completely distributed manner, not relying on any centralized component. Still, Tribler manages to remain fully backwards compatible with BitTorrent.

Tribler is available for Linux, Windows, and OS X.
